Several times during show the right channel drops out and has some minor distortion on piano notes. The following correctable pops were fixed using Cool Edit 2000 by M. Vernon
D1T09 From 2:45.282 - 2:45.372 the right channel dropped with some static that sounds like a skip. Selectively de-clicked the big spikes so it is somewhat less jarring
D1T10 From 2:05.647 - 2:05.727 right channel dropped with some static that sounds like a skip. Selectively de-clicked the big spikes so it is somewhat less jarring
D2T08 Discontinuous jumps in waveform at 6:12.657 and 6:12.670 - de-clicked with good results
D2T09 Discontinuous jump in right channel at 2:51.617 de-clicked
D2T09 Discontinuous jump in waveform at 2:51.630 that sounds like a pop. De-clicked - but has residual thwop sound from discontinuity. Less jarring than original pop
D3T04 Discontinuous jumps in waveform at 1:45.855 and 1:45.869 De-clicked but can still detect the dis-continuity but less jarring than original

Subject: Those who love '77 shows
will greatly enjoy this one. It's a warm, good-quality AUD, very listenable.

I knew this show was damn good as I was there; I listened on the way home last night and I was howling at the end of Half Step. It's just sparkling, you can almost here the paint dripping from the ceiling. Tuscaloosa 5/17, used to be my fav HS but I think this may nudge it out. Whatdaya think? Peace brothers & sisters

Subject: screw buying dead music its free
this is an amazing show buy why are you buying shows when tapes and bootlegs are free. you think dick from dixx pixx ever paid for any songs. hell no.

Subject: One of the best of '77
If you love this band's music you must hear the St. Stephen sandwich in the 2nd set here. The NFA>Stella Blue is incredible and the whole thing is just pure magic. Also the Scarlet>Fire is a great one, which is saying a lot considering the context of all the other great Scarlet>Fire's around this time. go to or Amazon and get this one!!!

Subject: End of 2nd Set
The end of the 2nd set from St. Stephen on is really good. The Not Fade has some great jams in it.
Reviewer: Dooly - - January 15, 2010
Subject: mercy!
usually not too big on audience shows, but this one sounds decent and the setlist and playing is outstanding. I had to grab it. Thanks bud!

Subject: Cornell Preview
Very, very nice. Killer Music to start and then the show just flows on from there. Second set is a preview of great things to come on 5-8-77.
